Desert Deployment

Right after the Designer Darling Contest, Stuff to Scrap asked if I would be interested in a Guest position during the month of April. uh, YES! I didn’t really want to win the contest, per se, but I wanted an opportunity to  see if being a designer was really something that I could do. To see if it was a good fit for me, for my family, and for STS. So really, I won, and working with the other designers and moderators at STS has been awesome.

The first kit I knew I wanted to work on was one to honor my husband’s service overseas the last year. He’s been back now for almost a month and it’s been wonderful. Desert Deployment has 14 papers and 37 elements and is S4H/S4O friendly. I’m going to use it to scrap the hundreds of pictures that my husband took in Afghanistan. These are definitely memories that need to be recorded well for posterity. I love looking at pictures of my grandfathers from WWII, and I know someday my grandkids will love looking at the record of this war (back when Grandpa was young and hot).

The kit has word arts with the mission names from the Iraq and Afghan wars, overseas service ribbon, Afghanistan service ribbon, Maps of Iraq and Afghanistan, razor wire, bullets and bullet holes (erase the layer behind it for an awesome effect), two patterns of camouflage, and several pieces of military gear.CF_DD_Preview-web

Hi there! I was in the contest with you and I just sent my DH to Afghanistan about a month ago. This kit is beautiful! I have been working on a kit called "Letters from Home" which will reflect the homecomings, leavings and all the "fun" of being separated. Thank you, your family and your DH for his service. I was also curious to know where you are? I am at Ft. Campbell.... would be nice to meet if you were hear too.
Thank you for the wonderful QP... it will be used!
